Thank you for visiting my blog!

I am a 26 year old photographer, mother, daughter, friend. I take a journalistic view to my photography. My main goal is to catch true emotion and feeling. Hopefully by reading this blog you can gather a sense of what my work and I are about. Thanks for reading!

Every one meet Aidyn. Here he is a day away from his fifth birthday.
His mom and I have known each other since I was in Ms White's first/second grade combo class. I was a first grader who was forced to wear knit sweater skirt sets and had painfully short hair. She was a second grader who would sneek her pet rats to school and get caught. Together we saved many bees from drowning in the Cedergrove Elementary school sprinklers.  We swore that her kid sister doll came to life at night and gave her real kid sister a real hard time. One time after making paper mache bowls in her backyard we found and emerald beetle drowned in her pool. We gave it cpr and brought it back to life. Our parents gave each other permission to spank one and other's kids (they never did!) Thats what kind of friends we were. We had pet jumping spiders who lived in a coffee can. I remember Dancing to Blind Melon and sneaking into her Ivy Fort out back. We used to talk about how when we grew up we would not have any kids (Eww!) Instead, we would have a large warehouse with many rooms and we would have all sorts of animals living in there. Bats seem to stand out. Some how Michael Jackson was involved with this. Most of my favorite childhood memories involve Aidyn's mother. So happy that after nearly twenty years (wow) I can still call this girl a friend. In just over a month Dorae will be welcoming a baby girl! Can't wait to get my hands on her and get some fun new born shots...Ah!

This kid is great. I also like this photo a great deal. What do you get when you mix the sun, a tree stump, green grass and a kid? You get: Weeeeeee!

A momma's love.

Loving his wrinkly newborn skin.

Older photo of my son that I adore.

Oh I miss that lip. The Pudge. The smooshy face. It is almost like every day you have to give up or lose something as your babies grow. 
Thinking about it though, I guess it is more of a trade. I miss this face but now I have a boy who speaks (and signs!) and walks through the house quietly saying "rawr" like a tiger. A boy who loves kitties. A boy that gives  kisses and plays chase. A boy who loves his momma. I wouldn't give up any of these things. Not even to get that face back.  Lucky for me I have these photos to look back on...cliche I know but so true!
